We now know why toads curl up and die.
Itled to a trip to the doctor and eye drops 4 times a day for a week and it's still red. At least the eye is Ok and not pussy any more and the doctor reckons there won't be any permanent damage.
I reckon I can top that!
I was in the back yard with the kids, found a toad and whacked him with a shovel to stun him. Proceeded to explain about the toxic exudate they posses and reminded the kids why we don't touch them or let the dogs play with them... poked the toad with the shovel a tad too hard a SSSSSSSQUIRT. Toad toxin straight to the eye
